Data collection, analysis and application are key enablers for ocean data innovation. Data integration/interoperability is needed.

With input from EMODnet, Copernicus Marine and leading marine research infrastructures, Blue-Cloud is contributing to the open science transformation by an easier discovery and access of blue data, open to all to implement open science and AI. The workshop will be opened by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD) and Directorate-General Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE).

Best practices of marine data federation from the Blue-Cloud2026 and the iMAGINE European projects will be showcased.

The OceanTeacher Global Academy (OTGA) and the Ocean Best Practices System (OBPS) of IOC/UNESCO will dive into the education and training needs to ensure data management practices and standards are put in place at a global level.

The DITTO Programme will complement with insights from the global efforts to build awareness around ensuring cross-regional data sharing towards the development of digital twins of the ocean.

The event will be hybrid, therefore participation is possible both in person and online.
